Requirement #7 of the American Mountain Men

7. Must be able to demonstrate ability to track man or animal under natural wilderness conditions.

This requirement is optional for advancement to Bossloper and mandatory for the Hiveranno degree.

The best way to demonstrate a skill is to do it over and over. This requirement can be demonstrated at each hunting camp and every time you set a trap. I was taught to track animals as a child by my father and grandfather. It is a skill I’ve used and honed over a lifetime in the woods. If you don’t have someone to teach you in person, I will recommend the following books.
